Re: All DIYs I did in my Scorpio

i started doing it by scratching the headlamp with 800, 1000, 2000 sand paper. And removed all the door cards and prepared all that for wrapping. I also removed my tail and head light

Good DIY buddy!

If only I had time to spend for my car now, I could also do things myself

Re: All DIYs I Did in My Scorpio

good work Thomas, you can also do similarly on the glove box cover and the cover below the steering, i had done the same job sometime in the last year, however I have not done the same for the front doors since i was not satisfied with the job done on the arm rests on the door pads, i would be trying this again sometime when I am free.

Re: All DIYs I Did in My Scorpio

Wow great DIY, how old is the Scorpio.

I always wanted to know what's written on that yellow sticker about Turbo, just towards right of Steering..

Well looks good DIY, but you should have left the indicator as it is.

Red is critical while you brake, so as the person at back can notice you while braking.

How was the headlamp cleared by sand paper, didn't it cause scratch.

Re: All DIYs I Did in My Scorpio

I guess, I am a bit late. Good work, finishing is really neat. Can you share the name of the material & its cost? the one you have used on the door pad etc
